Vaccine-induced immune thrombotic thrombocytopenia (VITT), also known as thrombosis with thrombocytopenia syndrome (TTS), is a rare, idiosyncratic life-threatening condition that can arise after COVID-19 vaccination with AstraZeneca (AZ) or Johnson & Johnson/Janssen (JJ) vaccines (not reported with Pfizer or Moderna vaccines). This document with supplemental appendices has been developed through extensive consultation with BC medical experts and physician groups to improve awareness and to help guide screening, diagnosis and management of VITT/TTS.
